These belts can be linked at 90 degrees (ER) or 180 degrees (ER-P).
In the case of the belt linked at 90 degrees, the connecting rod is linked to the next one in a ladder-like fashion, forming smooth and uniform edges.
The links of the linkage can be welded to achieve greater strength.
Their configuration of closely spaced spirals and linked rods allows for a very thin and high-strength belt.
The belt linked at 180 degrees is commonly known as the Baker's Belt. This linkage ensures controlled material stretching during the heating process, making it ideal for installation in long ovens and eliminating the potential risk of wear due to friction, thus extending the belt's lifespan.
Materials and temperatures
These can be manufactured in AISI 314 or AISI 330 (an alloy with a nickel content of 37% and a chromium content of 17%, with the remaining components in proportions similar to AISI 314).
These belts perform very well at high temperatures (up to 1150 degrees).
